is progressing and away the mature economic and economy as we have it pretty sound situation. well, if you compare what is happening in the u.s. in terms of the design of the framework of my economic policy, this is a totally different vision. in the u.s. you have the degree of flexibility. it's ready to intervene and to apply a very flex ability monetary policy, wearing europe the process is very cumbersome. it is a process in which the decision-making is extremely complex and we lack a proper lender for sovereign ends. this is the root of the problem today, that we have to apply fiscal policy, but we don't have a sufficiently policy. i would like certainly a lender of last resort. there is a situation for and stability in the sovereign that markets an example for that, in this chart you see the spread of the government that equally compare with germany and the spread is nearly 650 basis point. as you can all understand, it is impossible to work within a monetary union with such discrepancies between the core countries to finance themselves in european countries in this case, we have to p
to understanding the problems of our economy, presenting a plan for the american people, so i think that paul is going to do -- going to do a great job, but i also think it's very important for people to understand, and i think people realize that joe biden is a gifted or ator. he is very good at rhetoric, and i think is he very relatable so i think it's two different people, and i think it's going to be a great night. >> have you talked to ryan at all about his debate performance, what he needs to do, that whole thing? >> sure. paul is one of my very good friends. i talk to paul all the time about a lot of different things, but i think he is taking it very seriously. sure. i think both parties should be nervous. i mean, it's a big night. it's a big -- it's always going to be a big night. >> do you think it makes a difference? there are a lot of people who say, look, the debates are a side show. it's all about -- do you think that ryan has to keep the momentum going from what was widely seen as a mitt romney win in denver? >> we had a good week last week. there's no doubt about it. we have to
. >> they are trying to suck the life blood out of the economy. >> vampires? really, mr. romney? this sucking up to the right wing went too far. nice try, moderate mitt. but we got the tape and we got you. water will work for a few seconds but if you're not drinking it, it's going to get dry again. i recommend biotene. all the biotene products like the oral rinse...the sprays have enzymes in them. the whole formulation just works very well. it leaves the mouth feeling fresh. if i'm happy with the results and my patients are happy with the results, i don't need to look any farther. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabe
? the choice is clear. a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic growing economy that provides opportunity and jobs. mitt romney and i will not duck the tough issues. we will not blame others for the next four years. we will take responsibility. we will not try to replace our founding principles. we will reapply our founding principles. the choice is clear. the choice rests with you. we ask you for your vote. thank you. >> thank you both again. thank you very much. this concludes the vice- presidential debate. please tune in next tuesday for the second presidential debate in new york. i do hope all of you go to the polls. have a good evening.

that the economy is a top issue, you run into a risk of focusing on too many items as opposed to jobs and economic issues. host: there will also be a foreign policy debate coming up on october 22. is this a sort of preview of that debate? will this be a preview for the obama camp to see what they will be talking about, coming up? caller: it will be a chance for governor romney to do a preview, yes. the thing that i think occurred many times before, romney camp -- came out and named a lot of these things fairly forcefully. from what we saw yesterday, this will be an even stronger reputation of his view on those issues. getting out on the campaign trail at these paul ryan events, particularly when it comes to the issue of things like foreign aid and how this country deals with the resources when it comes to other places, we do not exactly see that relationship being reciprocal. it is something that has gotten a surprising amount of attention on the trail over the last few weeks. it could be an area where the mitt romney campaign is looking forward as they decided to hold this speech. host: one piece
children. what i want to think about is a future that has jobs. >> the ad goes on to say the economy is important to women. >> a victory for the obama campaign on early voting in ohio. a federal appeals court in the buckeye state just reinstated early voting on the three final days before election day. the ruling means that people in the key battle ground state can continue to cast their ballots. depending on the decision of the local border of elections that is. the obama camp filed that lawsuit arguing that everyone should have a chance to vote on those days. >> and the early voting is now under way in florida. absentee ballots are in the mail. yesterday miami-dade county mailed out 170,000 ballots. officials say voting by mail has exploded. in fact more than half of voters cast their ballots by mail or during early voting in the last general election. >>> in today's strategy talk, september jobs report came out just in the nick of time for president obama after this week's tough debate performance. but the honeymoon only lasted five minutes before a tweet by former g.e. ceo jack w
's policies would hurt farmers. the governor talks about his five-point plan to fix the economy, something he says will help everyone from farmers to small businesses. >> i'll make sure our tax policies and our regulatory policies and healthcare, all these things come together to make it easier for small business to grow and thrive. america needs this new direction. we can't go on the path we've been on. we must restore america's strength and i will do it with your help. >> the obama campaign leveling a new attack at governor romney today over his plans to cut spending, specifically cut funding for pbs that would affect big bird. they have a new ad about it on today. >> bernie madoff, gut tons of greed and the evil genius to towered over him. one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird, big bird, big bird. >> it's me big bird. >> big yellow, a men as to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> reporter: the republican national committee coming out with its own response, this graphic advertisement that quotes the count from ses
get this balanced budget. we must get this debt under control. this debt not only hurts our economy today with the threat of higher interest rates and a losing a dollar and much higher tax rates. we know that we are giving the students here at this academy, our children and grandchildren, a lower standard of living. we've never done that in this country before. host: vice-presidential candidate paul ryan in new hampshire at a recent event. here's what you might hear from the vice-president joe biden at tonight's debate. this is from a recent campaign stop in florida. [video clip] >> there is no quit in america, folks. ladies and gentlemen, that's why i know i'm not the only one who was offended to hear governor romney write off nearly half the country is in his statement about 47% of the people being dependent. if you read the book congressman ryan has written with two other leading young members of the republican party, they talk about -- the title of the book is "young guns," and they talk about this culture of dependency in america without acknowledging that all those people -- o
to "washington journal." as campaign 2012 hits its final month, the presidential candidates are using the economy to frame their vision for the future and what they would do for the american dream. we saw a jobs numbers that showed an unproven unemployment rate. we would like to hear your opinions. has the american dream been downsized? you can also share your opinion on social media. send us a tweet by writing @cspanwj. you can also join the conversation on facebook. or you can e-mail us. the front page of "the washington post"looks out with the call life of a salesman. he always finds to -- he always seems to find optimism in the worst of circumstances. here is another chance. the story profiles this man building and installing pools. how he had to downsize his business, cut employees, and work even harder to find jobs. let's take a look at the content. it says -- what do you think? has the picture of the american dream changed? national journal took a look it how americans are perceiving the economic situation right now, not just on a national level but on the personal lives, too. in a heartla
it the economy tax. it's been crushing. >> question. why did president obama seem thrown off balance? did he underestimate governor romney, pat buchanan? >> he certainly d. governor romney performed better on substance than any candidate in any presidential debate in history. reagan would have beaten him in style in 1980 but on substance i've never seen anybody better prepared than governor romney. he was on of fence. the real question, why did barack obama, the president, do so badly. john, he didn't come prepared for what he found there. he seemed difident, almost disinterested, sour. when they had the two pictures together he was looking down at his notes and the governor was talking to him as if he was lecturing him. some say he's lost his enthusiasm for the battle. he looked like he was weary of the job. i think it may have been something to do with him having been out on the road for a year saying the same thing. he didn't seem to be intellectually stimulated. >> do you think he's overstating that? >> i think mitt romney far exceeded expectations. he turned in a bothow performance. i t
our economy forward, as he has for 31 straight months. and 44-month low in the unemployment rate. you know what is really shocking is that you have republicans, colleagues of mine, mitt romney, reince priebus, disappointed to continue the football analogy. they were rooting for a fumble and it's unbelievable that they are disappointed that we have a 44-month low in the unemployment rate. the american enterprise institute said that anyone talks about cooking the books is living in crazy town. so i guess chairman priebeus and other republicans either are dwelling there or simply rooting for failure. we need to continue to move our economy forward. >> shannon: the same grandpa, aei, said that under the president's plan, taxes would go up by $4,000 are they right? >> the tax policy center, which made up of economists from the bush administration and as well as the clinton administration, their asis says when it comes to mitt romney's and paul ryan's budget plan, it would cost $2,000 to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, it turns medicare into a voucher system. that's on
think algerians would focus on surviving in the informal economy, but algeria will effectively return to the it is status quo. it'll be this big, glaring absence in north africa. the largest country in africa disengages from the international community, solutions to the instability that dr. zoubir mentioned, solutions to the instability in sir car or northern -- syria or northern mali. what would make this all the more glaring is if our worst fears about libya were to come to pass. as i mentioned before, the libyan government is very much committed to the road map they've laid out, they're very committed to the political process, but i'd like to bring you back to the middle of 2011. at the time, gadhafi's head of external security defected. and when he defected, he warned that libya would become like somalia. and at the time i think most frames of references were to mogadishu, to a black hawk down moment. and, unfortunately, we have had a black hawk down moment in benghazi. but i think he's, you know, a are nuanced guy. and what i think he was referring to was a much broader frame of
, the one thing they are specific about is they will take taxes from 18.5% of the economy under normal circumstances, the historical average for the last 30, 40 years, to 21%. that over a decade is a $5 trillion tax increase. they tend not to talk about it, but it's the most important thing in simpson/bowles, a $5 trillion tax increase. there is no room for tax reform because they take all that lovely money, and they spend it. >> look, okay, there's tax rates and tax revenues. now a couple of things, tax rates, marginal rates are different from tax revenues. revenues can come from growth, from capped deductions. i just want to ask you, grover, do you support mitt romney's plan which would lower the rates, put a strict limit on the dollars of tax deductions and increase the economic growth rate? do you support romney? >> well, romney's plan is revenue neutral. he's made a commitment to the american people not to have a net tax increase. that's a great plan. obama wants higher tax rates, and schumer, the leader in the senate, made that clear as well, so it's between romney wanting to cut
to jack welch, one of the all time-great c c c c c ceos. he was tweeting about the economy adding 114,000 jobs last month and the jobless rate falling three-tenths of a point to 7.8%. that would be the lowest since president obama took office. here's how president obama reacted to the economic news. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> president obama on the campaign trail today. now here's what mitt romney said. >> the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly, but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> he went on to say the country can do better, which is about what you would expect him to say, same as you would expect president obama to say what he said. that's the way the two sides do it, year in, year out, campaign after campa
will. i'll just create a better economy by snapping my fingers now. don't know how long he can get away with this, maybe until election day, but he's taking this position that it almost doesn't matter what he says as long as it sounds good at the time. >> cecile, let me ask you about, when you get up in the morning and worry about the possibility of this election going the wrong way from your perspective of a volunteer for obama, when you really think, and you have to talk to your best friends whom we care most about, when you tell pro choice women what they should fear from the next administration, should it be a romney administration, what is your concerns? what are the list of concerns you have? >> first of all, the thought that my daughters would have fewer rights than i do, or my granddaughters or other folks' children, women would literally lose the right to make their own personal decisions about health care, about having children is absolutely incredible. that is frightening. the other thing that's an immediate concern is planned parenthood. we see 3 million patients every year.
economic statistics as much as you like, but people know their own economy and their own lives. he's trying to put against that by saying there are joshs in the ground we will dig up presumagely by pulling away from environmental regulations. he's talking really about fracking. that's his plan for ohio. if ohio people think that's a great plan to get them jobs, them they know who to vote for. >> karen, romney was in iowa today voicing his opposition to another source of revenue, the estate tax. take a listen to this. >> my own view is we ought to kill the death tax. you paid for that farm once. you shouldn't have to pay for it again. >> last year up to $5 million could be passed on without incurring estate tax but i guess in romney's case he's talking about $50 million to each one of his five sons. the least you can say is that romney puts hits family first. >> oh, absolutely. you know, and i'm sure if he actually explained that to the voters that he was talking to that really he's talking about that $50 million, they could all relate just perfectly, right? i mean, here is the problem, agai
this administration-- >> let me tell you what the itoll as, the ayatollah sees his economy being crippled. the ayatollah sees there are 50% fewer exports of oil. he sees the currency going into the tank. he sees the economy going in a free-fall, and he sees the world for the first time totally united in opposition to him getting a nuclear weapon. now with regard to bb he's been my friend for 39 years. the president has met with bb as much as he's spoken to anybody. just before he went to the u.n. i was in a conference call with the president-- with him talking to bb for well over an hour. and-- and-- in stark relieve, in detail of what was going on. this is a bunch of stuff. look, here's the deal-- >> what does that mean it's of a bunch of stuff. >> it's irish. >> it is. we irish call it malarkey. >> thanks for the translation. >> the irish call it malarkey. last thing, the secretary of defense has made it absolutely clear-- he didn't walk anything back. we will not allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. what bb held up there was when they get to the point where they can enrich urani
on that. so whether it's on the economy, whether it's on leadership, he's now tied with the president. as far as leadership ability is concerned. so i think romney got everything out of that debate and more. >> he certainly did. and if you take a look at -- let me put the numbers back on the screen one more time. earlier this month before the debate, romney was behind the president, the president, 51%, romney, 43%. eight-point difference. now 49% for romney, 45% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virgin
the economy turned around and create jobs and move forward rather than what paul ryan and mitt romney have proposed, which is to take us back to policies that crashed our economy, that -- here's the bottom line. american voters the next 26 days will have a choice and joe biden will make this case. do we want to go back to a window of time like those under president clinton when we had the longest sustained prosperity as a result of middle class focused economic policies or do we want policies like those during the bush era that focused on tax breaks for the wealthiest and almost no regulation. i think the choice is clear. >> 9 hours, 30 minutes, you and i whether be watching along with most americans. thank you so much for your time today. >> thank you. >>> it's a high stakes debate between paul ryan and joe biden. what it will take to win. we'll hear from alan schroeder. there the debate change the momentum of the race? that's the question. tweet me your thoughts. oh no, not a migraine now. try this... bayer? this isn't just a headache. trust me, this is new bayer migraine. [ male announc
. romney also believes he's going to be up to stimulate the economy picks of the economy will grow, which means receives will go. is also said that is going to be able to tax loopholes. i'm not a tax expert, but it seems to me that there's an awful lot of those loopholes, and that will help. and again when we're only talking about essentially 1.4% of% of the entire problem, it se a doable doing to fix. you can't fix it in one year. you can fix in four years for sure. so at least i try to answer your question. now, i can't just sit back and listen to some of the stuff and be told in effect well, facts matter but you, dov, you just don't know any facts. first of all, one little fact, i really wonder whether mr. panetta who talked about the smallest number of ships since 1915, said that in a letter to your former boss, senator mccain, would really be happy to give this argument is ridiculous. wasn't a republican who made that case. it was mr. panetta. number one. number two, the navy is going to be bigger because i funded the ships that are being built. it takes a few years to get them out t
economy. a .3% drop from last month. mitt romney, meanwhile, downplaying it. >> we learned the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the work force. more americans are getting jobs. too many of our friends and neighbors are still looking for work or struggling to pay the bills. many of them since long before the crisis hit. we owe it to them to keep moving forward. we've come too far to turn back now. >> you realize the number of people in america, the participation of our adults in the work force were the same as when we got elected our unemployment rate would be about 11%. people in this country are having a hard time finding a job. people in this country are having a hard time making ends meet even if they do have a job. >> the 7.8% figure is the lowest since the president took office and total employment increased 873,000, that is the biggest jump in a monthly number since june of 1983. the numbers bolster president obama's re-election argument and potentially blunts momentum earned by mr. romney in wednesday's deb
option for the nation and the economy. >> there are all these potential outcomes. i would defy any one of you to really know what they are. therefore, it is irresponsible policy just to say, let's see. let's not see. i mean risk management says let's try to avoid that. >> dimon says he has even bigger issues with the tone in washington regarding american business right now. >> if you think that washington and business can go to war with each other and it is going to be good -- terrible error. i mean collaboration is what should happen. we should have had collaboration. we were in a crisis. every busy know wanted help to get things done and would have pulled together, worked around the clock but it became a war. now we're relitigating parts of those wars. dodd-frank and health care. it's all being relitigated. >> on the issue of collaboration, he talked about what's going on o in europe to try to stem the debt crisis. and he said, you know, the thing about europe is it has the will but not the way. we have the way. but not the will. >> we are going to keep monitoring it. thank you very
to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> mr. romney, of course, saw it a little differently. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> good try but actually this month, the rate fell because americans were finding work, not because they were dropping out of the labor force. he was right about one thing. >> the american people have a choice. i think in both men we have individuals who cared very deeply about our country and care about the people of america. but we would lead america in very different ways. >> well, that choice was crystal clear on debate night. now, liberal pundits grumbled and groaned over the president' decidedly underwhelming performance behind the podium. let's be honest, i was one of them. i could not believe the president left so many easy opportunities for jabs pass him by. defund big bird? granted the president returned all the jabs the next day. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this
talking about today? are they still talk about differences on job, on economy, on health care? uh-huh. no. no. no. the number one issue that has taken hold more written about, more spoken about more than any other issue is big bird. yes, indeed. we remember mitt romney pressed to say, okay now look you say you are going to cut all of these programs. let's get real. give us one example of programs you are going to cut. >> romney: i'm sorry, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i like big bird, i actually like you too. >> bill: oh boy. it's so stupid just so stupid to lay that out there. this has been a classic republican attack line going way back. i remember when newt gingrich was speaker his number one issue, number one issue as speaker of the house of representatives was to cut all funding for pbs and big bird and all of the rest on sesame street. it never went anywhere. and you know why it's not going to go anywhere? because big bird is too popular and doesn't cost much money. if you are alive, right? you know pbs and enjoy pbs, if you have ever had kids o
stronger than on the economy and other matters. the other critique is that mitt romney is saying i would do things differently, but there isn't a huge spelling out of how he would do things differently. you mentioned iran. going forward he had a detailed critique of how to handle it forward. that's the trouble trying to define stark lines. that's why he went philosophical to say i would be tougher. we have a duty as america to lead. he mentioned syria. we need to step in and support demonstrators and those things. we'll see. he clearly has an intention, an opening against obama. >> chris, while carrying a bigger stick on foreign policy he's also on the campaign trail being kinder and gentler himself in unveiling what they didn't do at the convention other than through surrogates. he's been giving speeches now three in a row where he gives example of his ministry, his mormon ministry and conduction to suffering people. chris, thank you. >> thank you. >> now i want to move on to a point of personal privilege. some viewers might be confused by the fact that the obama campaign is airing a comme
'm involved in this economy in a very deep way right now in lots of businesses, and this economy is not growing, i guarantee you, at 5%. >> they say a number of these workers are seasonal numbers and maybe work for smaller companies that aren't really tracked in the way the bls tracks these numbers, and so maybe it's small jobs here and there. >> maybe, but let's face it. the number that came out today from the household survey was the highest number since june of '83. >> but what evidence -- >> i have no evidence. >> you don't have any evidence. it's one thing to doubt the numbers and say they should be revised. you said, these chicago guys will do anything. >> last night i had a question mark. >> you wish it was, will these chicago guys -- okay. so you don't really stand by the notion -- >> i stand by it. i stand by these numbers should be examined. >> but do you stand by these chicago guys will do anything? >> i'm not going to change my tweet. i'm not accusing anybody of anything. >> but you say these chicago guys will do anything. >> you see they called romney a liar for the
